I don’t know much about Curran and his work outside of goals etc but to be fair to may he is well liked at Pittodrie.

Most fans I know desperately want him to find the goals because all the other parts of his game are brilliant and he has contributed a lot to us in spite of not scoring.
People just want to see Curran to score a goal, or do something/ anything.
May would do a job for us , affording him is another matter.
In saying that the Americans havnt been short on cash since in charge

Always have the impression with May that if he got a couple of goals in games that were close together he could go on a great scoring run à la Cosgrove last season. However, I always thought the same for El Bakh at us.

A loan down to the Championship could be a good deal for all parties, May scores shitloads for us, May gets his confidence back and Aberdeen get a player back that they originally bought. Plus there’s the mutually pleasing smashing of the DABs involved, naturally.

Thank You

If we could pick up Wighton on loan, or for f**k all I'd take him tbh. I think he'd still be good for a few goals at this level.

 

Craig Wighton, if his fitness levels are good , would be a wise addition imho.

May even bag a better return of goals if he's actually utilised as an out and out striker, instead of what was always appearing to be a support act.

Worth also noting he was rushed out of the door by Neil McCann to balance the figures following the signing of a 38 year old!!!!!

Best regards

May would score at least 15 at this level.

I trust in Jazzer though, his business so far looks good.

There’s nothing in the last 4? seasons to suggest that is even remotely possible. 

May is not what we need, add in the fact that he would command substantial wages, I really wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole.

I will take any striker who can occasionally find the net. It’s been so long.

Wighton would be okay as an attacking midfielder. I think he’ll end up at the likes of Forfar or Montrose and be a good player at that level, though.

It’s been 6 and 7 seasons since May did the job for Hamilton and St Johnstone, that’s a very long time. I think he scored 7 goals in the last two seasons for Aberdeen, despite playing the vast majority of games. 

If we get him for a grand a week, fine, otherwise he would be a waste of money IMO.

The club must’ve saved a few quid so far this season just by the  lack of numbers in the squad. 

Maybe saving a bit of money over the last month or so to be in a position to offer new transfer targets a bit more money to get them here. Putting 2+2 and getting 5 probably!

For the record, I am all for Stevie May coming to Dens. To be quite honest, if a player who not too long ago was touted as one of the most promising strikers in Scotland can't score even semi-regularly against teams like (no disrespect) Morton, Alloa and Arbroath, he should just hang his boots up. I think May in the Championship would be a coup.

We seem to like statistics - Craig Wighton has (according to Wiki) scored 11 goals in 139 games. That’s pretty meh, surely. Curran has scored 72 in 393 games. Meh - but double Wighton’s rate. I’d love Stevie May at Dens. Madness to suggest otherwise.

I’d be all for May coming in on loan, would be a great foil for Nelson imo. The Aberdeen fan who posted would know more about May than us and seems to fairly positive about him. I don’t think he’s played as the central striker much up at Aberdeen due to the form of Cosgrove, did score a bit of a worldy for them against us up at Aberdeen on his debut tbf. 

I’d also be happy to see Wighton back as long as he wasn’t being wasted playing out wide and used in the number 10 position that would suit him. 

If we could get May, Wighton, another experienced goalkeeper and someone like Scott Wright I’d be very happy.

May has been constantly played out of position to accommodate other strikers. He’s always scored when he’s been the main striker. Andy Nelson has barely scored thousands of goals and we’re all pretty happy with him.

Positives of our strikers, I cant think of too many. Nelson needs to stay fit is the biggest task for him. We will be relying on him a lot I reckon so I'd hope Dundee are looking for someone with goals in them.
Surely we cant be looking at Nelson, Curran and youth players for the coming season?

Meh people here were expected a few signings this week or even one.... we start our first competitive game tomorrow. How serious Mcpake will take this competition I'm unsure.

Don’t get the fascination with bringing Wighton back to be honest.

Apart from a few moments of magic he was very inconsistent and whenever he did get a chance in the team he didn’t take it.

He has never performed on a consistent basis at senior level and hasn’t done much at hearts to suggest that will change any time soon.

Has plenty talent but sometimes that just isn’t enough.

He stated in an interview he was taking it very seriously as he's experienced the shit cup runs firsthand, and I believe him. However, I think he'll use these games and probably the Challenge Cup games to give the youth players professional game time experience, which I get. Still would like to have an easy comfortable win tomorrow rather than putting our faith in a squad of largely untested youths, but we'll see what happens.

Why? 

What have you seen of him in the past, say, three seasons that makes you think "He'd be a great signing!"?

Suppose I look at Curran and I look at May and think, who has more chance of scoring in the championship? A player who last few seasons just hasn't been scoring to much in the top league , but according to there fans ( on here ) he still offers a lot and still want to keep him or we have Curran who so far has offered zero.

His wage demand would it be a huge issue, the Americans aren't exactly short of money?

Who do you think is the player in our current squad that you believe will lead us high up in the league? Or do you think it will be a shitfest all season?

Me personally I genuinely don't know. But what I do know is that we are short on players across the whole field. Just think if we started to pick up injuries we may struggle.
